Mutated Animals Take Over in ‘Monster Zoo’

Not quite horror but I’ll be damned if this doesn’t sound cool. Paramount Pictures has preemptively picked up the rights to Monster Zoo, an upcoming graphic novel from Doug TenNapel, for a live-action adaptation that will be produced by Sam Raimi and Josh Donen via their Buckaroo Entertainment banner and Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. The action-adventure story is set in motion when an ancient idol is unearthed and transported to a zoo in the U.S. There, the idol’s spirit awakens and starts to mutate the caged animals. A group of teenagers must band together to try to stop the idol and the evil from destroying the world. The graphic novel will be published in May from Image Comics.
